Skeptical about products that talk about help for thinning hair, I tried Rogaine Foam for Women. I tried it for four months. It took about 4 weeks to notice the slightest improvement. I decided not to look to closely everyday, because looking in the mirror daily for the smallest signs of hair growth will literally drive you crazy. However after 5 months I could not believe what the pictures were showing. My hairline was looking better.
In clinical studies of mostly white women aged 18-45 years with mild to moderate degrees of hair loss, the following response to 2% minoxidil topical solution was reported: 19% of women reported moderate hair regrowth after using 2% minoxidil topical solution for 8 months (19% had moderate regrowth; 40% had minimal regrowth). This compares with 7% of women reporting moderate hair regrowth after using the placebo, the liquid without minoxidil in it, for 8 months (7% had moderate regrowth; 33% had minimal regrowth).
I red somewhere in a blog that one of the ingredients of minoxidil products causing itchness so I was just wondering wether do you know what ingredients it is if yes does any minoxidil products comes without that ingredients?
Apply aloe vera gel to your scalp to stimulate hair follicles and promote a fuller head of hair. Apply a quarter-sized amount all over your scalp, leave it on until your scalp starts to tingle, then rinse it out in the shower.
For household chemical products and most personal care products (with the exception of sunscreens), there is no current regulatory requirement that companies disclose percent composition data. This precludes evaluating whether a product is a potentially significant source of exposure to a chemical (e.g., presence of an ingredient at less than 0.1% of a formulation is unlikely to pose a risk, while presence of that ingredient at 10% of a formulation could be a significant source of human exposure). The absence of percent composition data also complicates the evaluation of whether a product is in compliance with applicable regulatory restrictions. Both regulatory agencies and trade associations manage the potential health risks of products by defining thresholds below which an ingredient is deemed safe as used (e.g., use of an ingredient is acceptable provided that it does not exceed 5% of a product’s formulation). Unless a product label discloses the percent composition data required to evaluate compliance, GoodGuide caps a product’s rating at 8 if it contains ingredients that have been restricted by regulatory agencies or trade associations.
There is a great deal of future hair loss treatments and possible cures in development. But these won’t be available anytime soon. And when they finally hit the market, they most likely won’t be cheap.
Defective Hair Shafts: A final cause of hair loss can be a defect with a person’s hair shaft. This damage can be caused by genetics, something in the environment, or inappropriate hair care. This kind of hair loss can’t always be reversed.
Happens…work on your hair..use olive oil plus coconut oil,massage and leave it for overnight and do that atleast twice a week. Use mild shampoo like Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo plus any good conditioner. Drink lots of water. Apply curd and egg mask per week.

Your amount of hair loss is different than that shown on the side of this carton or if your hair loss is on the front of the scalp. Minoxidil topical solution 5% is not intended for frontal baldness or receding hairline
I stopped using my Rogain. Now I use Biotin supplements that I bought from Sprouts. I spend 8 bucks on 90 pills, that is 90 days of pills for 8 bucks. Use slightly above the recommended daily value. If you use too much you will get acne. It seems to be growing my hair back. You can only get Biotin from certain foods like eggs and not many people eat those foods every day.

What is clear is that the same thing happens in aging men and women. Hair follicles get smaller. The anagen stage of hair growth gets shorter, and the resting (telogen) stage gets longer. The result: Thin, very short hairs — and many follicles empty of hair shafts.

Domen, I was reading some articles and also the links you’ve provided in your other comments above – they say both Finesteride and Minoxidil only check further hair loss and thicken existing hair – but both can’t re-generate hair that’s already gone from bald spots. I guess the effectiveness of these 2 medications are quite proportionate to age of the native! At 42, I guess, I am old ? Atleast according to Indian standards!!
Lavender, rosemary, and thyme have been shown to help hair growth and prevent thinning or balding. Try massaging the essential oils into your hair after shampooing, or you can make this Rosemary & Lavender Hair Rinse that my sister Rebecca created.
1) Massage – massage is likewise helpful. Massage empowers flow. As effectively noted, great flow in the scalp keeps hair follicles dynamic. Specialists propose a couple of minutes of every day head massage by hand.
Five years ago I began to lose my hair along my hair line and on the crown of my head. After four months I saw noticeable results (my hair stopped falling out). Then a couple months later I began experiencing slow but steady hair growth along my hair line and crown.
Vitamin E has been used as a home remedy for hair growth since ages. Vitamin E oil is rich in antioxidants and helps to fight the free radicals. It increases oxygen in the body and enhances blood circulation in the scalp. Regular massage with essential oils promotes hair growth and reduces hair fall and split ends. This makes your hair softer and smoother (6).
If you are experiencing hair turning white and falling out, make sure you do not have a dental infection. If your teeth are bad, your hair will fall out. Sometimes in circles of white hair that fall out. In any case, it can be a warning sign to check your teeth. And or see a doctor. Some folks just have bad hair. Shave it off. No worries!
Rosemary oil is prepared from the distillation of the rosemary herb. The oil increases cell division and expands the blood vessels, thus stimulating blood circulation. It increases hair growth and also acts as a hair tonic (7).
